Figured oak chest

As soon as I saw this old table in a recycling centre, I loved the grain, and knew it would make a stunning box.  Thankfully this one did not have such a dark brown stain, and the lovely figuring was immediately obvious.

It was the work of just half an hour or so to disassemble the table into its constituent parts.

Even though the top was quite badly scratched and water-damaged, you can see how beautiful the grain looks after a few quick strokes with a plane.

The end result was worth the effort
